Potato prints are something most people have done as a child. Cheap and easy, hard to mess up. For this year’s tree, I made stars and bows.

If you are nervous about just diving in and cutting, you can scrore your design with a toothpick first.

Make sure you are cutting towards the outside and not through the middle of your design (or star in this case). Any cut lines that you put through the middle of your stamp will hold more paint and show up in your print.

Next mix a small amount of water with which ever colour paint you are using. I stamped my first few prints on a paper towel to make sure the consistency was right. Then stamp away! I eye-balled where to put each stamp, but if you want to be more precise you could always measure and put a little pencil mark.
